TRICK-OR-TREAT

Tuck: "It's Halloween decorating day! Oh, yeah. Let's do this 'thang'!"
 
Halloween in our house is always an event. We've created some 
yearly traditions that we look forward to every single year. 
As you can see, pumpkin carving (and eating) is one of them.



Choosing costumes is a big deal. 
The kids (and Chris) take this task very seriously.


And we sing and dance a lot to the Halloween station on Pandora. 

Our kids can sing Purple People Eater by heart.
We also like to make up our own lyrics to songs, such as this 
one sung to the tune of The Twelve Days Of Christmas

On the twelfth field trip to the pumpkin patch my child showed to me...
  
 12 noses numbing, 11 cold kids griping, 10 hay bales heaping, 
9 scarecrows glancing, 8 kids a milking, 7 cider cups a brimming, 
6 pumpkins a weighing, 5 bee stings, 4 corn mazes deterred, 
3 goats in pens, 2 jack-o-lanterns, 
and an acorn from an oak tree.

What are some traditions that your family celebrates on Halloween?
